We’ll I’m in San Francisco for the Nike Women’s race. I didn’t publicize it. It’s my first real race since I took a break from running back in early 2013. I’m still nowhere near where I used to be. For that reason, ive not talked about it.
Im not even close to my old self. I’m 15 pounds heavier, slower, and I have issues breathing now. All things that were non issues a year ago. A year ago I ran 2 fall halves at a held-back pace that was not shabby at all. I would kill for a time like that now! We have a group of 13 here. 11 of them are LUNA coaches or runners. One is my mom. This may be the most challenging course I have ever run. Very hilly. I have faith I will run the best race I have in me. 30,000 something women out there will similar goals. Thank God I can still run. At least I am fortunate to have an able body…even if I am not quite pleased with my current ability.
